 INTRODUCTION
The Battle Cattle: Second Edition rules quickly pass over the MiddleAges. As they should not seem insignificant, this period was the basisfor Battle Cattle of the future. We know that the Middle Ages were thetime when crude forms of Battle Cattle pasture combat began. The fol-lowing timeline gives the true history of cows and their ever-so-impor-tant role in the society that oppressed them.Early Middle Ages: A battle began…"If you do not agree to my com-mands, then I shall-- [twang] [mooooooooooooooooooooooooo]* JesusChrist! Right! Charge!"Late Middle Ages: A battle ended…"Run away! Run away! Runaway!"**
*As to avoid a lawsuit, the author has intentionally misspelled this word, following the "m" with only 25 "o"s, not 26.**As to avoid a lawsuit, the author has intentionally left out the 4th set of the two-word repeating phrase.
SETTING 
Little do people know, but Battle Cattle truly made their mark in theMiddle Ages. For peasants, cows were both a food staple and a respect-ed companion. While these peasants were ridiculed and ordered to cleanup for the upper class, little did the aristocrats know of the events faraway from the lords and ladies.Jousting was by far the sport for the rich. Peasants watched joustingfrom afar with the only goal to fill the aristocrats with the illusion of  jealousy and envy. After a day of jousting was complete, the peasantswere sent home to wallow in their sorrows. But sorrow they did not have. They had cowsting. An underground world of early Battle Cattleevents where the fittest cow would fill its owner's coffers with glory andgold!

Sneaking off in the middle of the night, peasants from all over wouldmake their way to a secluded piece of farmland. Here, they would meetto watch their favorite cow make patties of others. The cheers fromupon the fences would echo through the hills, though never making it tothe ears of the rich sleeping on their soft beds. The frantic chants of "Bessie! Bessie! Bessie!" would only be equally muddled with bellow-ing chants of "Norman! Norman! Norman!" The peasants reveled inthe bloodshed, only hoping one day that their cowsting cattle could one-day drive out the poisonous aristocrats.Though the peasants felt the opportunity was there, cowsting nevercaught on to the peasant mass-market. For the time being, they reveledin their little niche, hailing such noted warriors as Moo-lin, Robin Herdand Arthur (you know, the one who pulled Excowlibur from the stone).

And just like any fad, it soon faded, leaving only jousting to make itsway to the history books.
BATTLE CATTLE CREATION
In Battle Cattle: Second Edition, you pick a cow type among otherthings. Follow the same steps and process explained on page 13 inBattle Cattle: Second Edition to start. Beyond choosing your cow typeas a normal run-of-the-barn cow, you will add a character class afteryour cow type. Individual character classes are explained in the next sec-tion. Some examples could include an "American Brahman Pailadin" ora "Corriente Cleric". The Battle Cattle you create will now become afantasy-based cow. Adding a cow class to your chosen cow type isrequired.Also explained on page 13 in Battle Cattle: Second Edition is theamount of money to begin the game. Now, Quest for the Holy Pailmoney is in Gold Pieces. We suggest creating Battle Cattle between therange of 10,000 gold pieces and 15,000 gold pieces. When referring tocow types and items from Battle Cattle: Second Edition in Quest for theHoly Pail, their costs are now adjusted to gold pieces on a one-to-oneration. For example, a Fifth Leg is $1,500 in Second Edition and is con-sidered 1,500gps in Quest for the Holy Pail; a Watusi cow is $400 inSecond Edition and is considered 400gps in Quest for the Holy Pail.
COW CLASSES
As explained in the previous section, adding a class to your cow type isnecessary to truly bring Battle Cattle into the world of fantasy. Eachclass will possibly have advantages, disadvantages and innate abilities.
